  • List remotes:

    $ conan remote list
    conan-center: [Verify SSL: True]
    local: http://localhost:9300 [Verify SSL: True]
  • List remotes in a format valid for remotes.txt (conan config install):

    $ conan remote list --raw
    conan-center True
    local http://localhost:9300 True
    # capture the current remotes in a text file
    $ conan remote list --raw > remotes.txt
  • Add a new remote:

    $ conan remote add remote_name remote_url [verify_ssl]

    Verify SSL option can be True or False (default True). Conan client will verify the SSL certificates.

  • Insert a new remote:

    Insert as the first one (position/index 0), so it is the first one to be checked:

    $ conan remote add remote_name remote_url [verify_ssl] --insert

    Insert as the second one (position/index 1), so it is the second one to be checked:

    $ conan remote add remote_name remote_url [verify_ssl] --insert=1
  • Add or insert a remote:

Adding the --force argument to conan remote add will always work, and won’t raise an error. If an existing remote exists with that remote name or URL, it will be updated with the new information. The --insert works the same. If not specified, the remote will be appended the last one. If specified, the command will insert the remote in the specified position

$ conan remote add remote_name remote_url [verify_ssl] --force --insert=1
  • Remove a remote:

    $ conan remote remove remote_name
  • Remove all configured remotes (this will also remove all recipe-remote associations):

    $ conan remote clean
  • Update a remote:

    $ conan remote update remote_name new_url [verify_ssl]
  • Rename a remote:

    $ conan remote rename remote_name new_remote_name
  • Change an existing remote to the first position:

    $ conan remote update remote_name same_url --insert 0
  • List the package recipes and its associated remotes:

    $ conan remote list_ref
  • Associate a recipe’s reference to a remote:

    $ conan remote add_ref OpenSSL/1.0.2i@conan/stable conan-center
  • Update the remote associated with a package recipe:

    $ conan remote update_ref OpenSSL/1.0.2i@conan/stable local-remote
